Highlanders U21 side win George Smith U21 Cup
On a wet and cold Saturday evening at Braefoot Park, the Victoria Highlanders FC U21 team beat a Bays United FC Gunners U21 side 4-0 emphatically to win the 2011 George Smith U21 Cup. Highlander goals were scored by Kevan Brown, Dylan Iruretagoyena, Daniel Jones, and Kurt Macauley with fellow Highlander GK Brock Reed picking up the clean sheet.
Highlanders FC U21 side went undefeated (12-2-0) topping the VISL U21 Graduate B League earning them a George Smith U21 Cup Final berth against Bays United FC Gunners U21. The Final was originally to be played at RAP with a kickoff at 12.00. But with the heavy amounts of rain that had fallen on Victoria for the last 48 hours and standing water on the pitch (safety concerns by VISL), the game was switched to Braefoot Park. Excellent win by the Highlander lads to cap off a great winter season and to kick off the 2011 Highlanders FC program into high gear. Here is to hoping to see some of these Reserve side members playing First Team minutes in the 2011 PDL season. Well deserved!
